Aloha, Lady Blue - The Mystery of Kahala Road Product Description:
Aloha, Lady Blue introduces the character of Stryker McBride, a former organized crime reporter living in self-imposed exile on a houseboat in Kaneohe Bay, after being shot by a rogue cop during an investigation. At the request of a gorgeous high school acquaintance, McBride finds himself swept up in the mysterious death of the beauty queen’s wealthy grandfather, who was found face down in a taro patch.
The recalcitrant McBride is the author’s homage to crime novelist John D. McDonald’s Travis Mc- Gee. “I wanted to create a 21st century Travis McGee character set in Hawaii”, Memminger said. “The result is Stryker McBride, a former newspaper reporter turned barefoot philosopher”. McBride narrates Aloha, Lady Blue, introducing readers to a vibrant cast of characters, among them “the gods” – Lono and Kane, McBride’s German Shepherds, who handle most of McBride’s “job” as night watchman for the local yacht club – and an assortment of gruff cops, local gangsters and salty sailors.
